An average song. UK#71.

Awesome!

Even in my rockist phase, I never really had a time for this song. Slovenly track which struggles to drag itself up to display. Not a whole lot to latch onto.

It's alright but not there best effort.

War is indeed a terrible thing but the way the lyrics are written do not do justice at all. I know I'll be getting hate for this since he was only 14 but if anything it just proves they shouldn't have been given the attention they'd been given. Not only that but the vocals are terrible and sound too grunge try-hardy. Just an all round boring and generic effort, I hate seeing pretentious pop music haters holding this up on some sort of pedestal when really it's just as laughable as most other music by teen musicians that has ever existed. Thank goodness this song didn't go to #1.

Another track in the 'you had to be there to truly appreciate it' basket. ;P

It's a right jam. I like this.
